Biostatisticians & Epidemiologists
Fridtjof Thomas, PhD Professor of Biostatistics, Preventive Medicine Dr. Thomas’ special research interests lie in statistical aspects of causality in the health sciences and the design of observational studies (also including secondary data analyses and chart reviews). Dr. Thomas is the co-investigator/biostatistician on several NIH funded studies. He is a member of the Biostatistics Collaborative Core at the Southeast Regional Center of the NHLBI-funded Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) study that has recruited over 160,000 women in over 40 clinical centers nationwide and is a member of the Design and Analysis Committee of the NIH-funded EARLY trials. He has served as grant reviewer for the Department of Defense’s Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program (CDMRP) and for the NIH Neurological, Aging and Musculoskeletal Epidemiology Study Section (NAME). He is Vice President of the Western Tennessee Chapter of the American Statistical Association (WTASA) and is Associate Editor of the Journal of Statistical Computation and Simulation (JSCS).
